College continues to navigate through this unprecedented time. While
we are still not aware of any cases of the novel coronavirus in
Logan County, the safety of the Lincoln College community is our
principal concern. Therefore, we are taking proactive steps with
guidance from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC), as well as local and state health officials.
At this time, Lincoln College will deliver all
traditional classes online from at least March 23-April 3. No
face-to-face instruction will take place on campus. Going to online
instruction enables Lincoln College to adhere to social distancing
guidelines and ensure the well-being of our students.
Lincoln College administration will continue to work diligently on
several contingency scenarios, making informed decisions to limit
the spread of COVID-19, while ensuring our mission to “uniquely
empower students to realize their full potential” is sustained
Lincoln College is restricting public access to all campus
facilities until further notice. This decision allows our
institution to reduce the number of individuals on our campus in
order to protect vulnerable populations.

our institution will provide updates to the campus and community as
they become available. We encourage the public to join members of
the Lincoln College cabinet and I tomorrow, March 19, on Facebook

I have no doubt that Lincoln College can get through these difficult
times together. In the face of adversity, our faculty and staff will
continue to be dedicated to supporting our students.
